Linda, my condolescences to you and your family. I did not know her but I know you were her caretaker. As a caretaker myself who recently lost a love one, I know this is heartbreaking. I do know that the angels have taken your Mother to meet her Savior and she is now Resting in Paradise. Call me and let me know how you are doing after going through this process. Prayers For all of you.

Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My deepest sympathy and condolences goes out to you and your family. The Bible calls Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) the source of life Acts 17:24,25 so have faith that Jehovah is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died so be assured that you will see your loved one again. Jehovah sees death as the enemy 1 Corinthians 15:26 and I pray he gives you comfort in your time of need. There have been eight instances in the Bible of humans young, old, male, and female who Jehovah brought back to life on earth John 11:39-44 and he yearns to bring back your loved one who are in his memory Job 14:14,15. I pray that Jehovah of comfort gives you strength and the ability to endure during this time and that you rely on him when you feel weak. In Jesus name I pray Amen
